It's Nioh and it came out like two weeks ago.

Actually I guess it might be a little more like Demon than Dark since there are discrete missions. Kind of like a Monster Hunter thing but with actually good combat and cool poo poo.

Shadow of War will probably be fun as long as you don't get really OP really fast like you did in the first. As excited as RDR2 makes me, all this talk of them taking lots of influence from GTA Online has me worried that it'll end up being a Pay2win grindfest everything else is either bland or downright bad. What the hell are we doing LOL

Their shooter scene has always been more third person based (Vanquish, Binary Domain, the REs)

The bulk of western developers, including every AAA dev, have grown increasingly obsessed with either replacing or melding with Hollywood and they don't seem to understand that video games are a completely separate medium from movies/TV and that insane production budgets and A-list celebrity casting is actually detrimental in the long run

Yeah, I think the problem is that Western companies are trying to please everyone within a wide demographic of people in order to make as much money as humanly possible, where the Japanese business model of "Sold enough to keep the lights on last year; adjust for inflation and do the same thing this year" leaves their developers more inclined to just not give much of a gently caress about anyone except their little hyperniche corner of the market, which leads to more interesting, creative games that, even when they're blatantly pandering failures, still have some kind of weird integrity to them. This just happens to be an especially bad year of failures- especially when stacked against what Japan is putting out- for the West (so far).

yeah for sure, it seems like even when japan does movie style stuff like mgs and ff they are still aware of how to keep the movie thing in check.

i talked to harry gregson williams once about working with kojima and i guess a lot of kojima's direction was over email, stuff like "imagine.... you are looking at someone, and they can't see you. now imagine you are looking at them.. and they can see you!"

wheras his scoring call of duty was like, he was watching video of kevin spacey in a mocap suit doing goofy poo poo.
